A man who worked for a contractor hired by the Virginia Republican Party faces 13 felony and misdemeanor counts for allegedly dumping voter registration forms into a trash bin. Democrats are calling for the Attorney General to investigate.

The suspect, 31-year-old Colin Small, is described by police as a "supervisor" in a Republican Party financed operation to register voters in Rockingham County in rural Virginia. Small was arrested after a local business owner in the same Harrisonburg shopping center where the local GOP campaign headquarters is located spotted Small tossing a bag into the trash.

Police say the bag was later found to contain eight voter registration forms. The attorney general's office says it can investigate only if asked by the State Board of Elections.

Republican officials say Small was fired.
